learn the language. live the culture.

At Alliance Française de Karachi, learning French isn’t about cramming textbooks. We know that a language is a living thing and it should be treated as such! Guided by our dedicated French professors who are seasoned and native speakers, our small group French classes are offered every two months and create an immersive environment where you can experience the French language through songs, radio, news articles, poetry, events, games and more. You’ll also learn about French culture and history. Ultimately, our goal is to help you master reading, speaking, listening and writing in French in a way that is both rigorous and fun. Our classes were even featured in the news!

Our next batch of French classes starts in January 2019. Please register by 5 January 2019 to secure your spot.
